Detox products – why is it a myth?
Various detoxification techniques describe the removal of toxins (and often kilograms) from our body. The helpers which are often offered are powders with hard-to-read ingredients, detox teas which cleanse the body, juice or a single product diet.
So, are there any reliable, comprehensive studies that have noticed the benefits of these or other detox to our body? No. In all this confusion of information, it is important to remember one thing – our body is “cleansed” or “detoxified” by our own body: liver, kidneys, lungs, skin and other organs.

Toxins are our unwanted satellites both in the environment and in our bodies. The good news is that our body knows how to get rid of them naturally. For instance, the liver is responsible for cleansing the blood of toxins such as alcohol, drugs, or metabolic toxins. The liver neutralizes toxins and thus helps to remove them from our body.
If you feel energetic, glowy, and your gut is working well, natural body detoxification is probably enough for you. However, if you feel that you are short of energy, have difficulty sleeping, have skin rashes, bloating or constipation, you may need to help your body eliminate the accumulated toxins.
2. Avoid processed foods, refined sugar, alcohol and smoking. By avoiding these toxins, we facilitate the work of the liver by allowing the body to better remove the remaining toxins.
3. Water is our best friend. No further comment is probably needed on this statement. Let’s try drinking about 6-8 glasses a day.
4. Let’s move more – active practices help our blood circulation and, consequently, the removal of toxins. Sport also helps remove toxins through activated sweating.
